Tobacco Road didn’t deliver the typical barn burners in basketball this year but there’s still plenty of heat to go around in other sports. This Thursday the showdown features No. 1 (Duke) and No. 2 (North Carolina)as they battle it out for national dominance in men’s college lacrosse. Until last Thursday, the ACC had three undefeated teams sitting atop the top 5. That ended with Duke knocking off Syracuse 15-14. In other noteworthy action then No. 9 Virginia flipped the script on No. 6 Notre Dame on Saturday coming away with a 12-11 win.

With five ACC teams in the top 10 of the Inside Lacrosse Top 20 the conference is on a roll toward some serious post-season play. First though, they must get past each other as teams head into a more conference laden schedule. Richmond, Albany and Utah swing into the mix along the way to keep things interesting.
